I am searching for News Articles about the murder of my GG Grandfather Thomas Applegate by his son-in-law Jediah Brown at Nauvoo IL. on Aug. 1 1853, So far all we have found is this very brief article from the Quincy IL. Whig.
"Brown who was indicted for the murder of Applegate (at Nauvoo) and another prisoner have effected their escape from the Carthage Jail.
Now that was bad news ! I would like to know if he was recaptured and punished for his crime. My GG Grandmother Margaretha suffered a stroke and died about a month after the shooting. I would also like to locate where they were buried.
